A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose | [Eckhart Tolle]

A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life's Purpose

Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are and learn to live and breathe freely.

Publisher's Summary

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents listeners with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are, which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are, and learn to live and breathe freely.

    "Very inspirational"
    Would you listen to A New Earth again? Why?

    I listen to it all the time because helps me remember what is important. There are times when I make myself and others miserable because of my ego. It helps me recognize those times for what they are and give it up.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It is similar to the bible. You listen to excerpts as needed for inspiration and guidance.

    "The Best!"

    I've listened to them all and this one is all you really need. Everything is explained in a very easy way to understand and the exercises are just what I like, uncomplicated. Common sense and the truth. Now is the answer.

    "Deep view of life"

    This is for people who are ready for it. Most will have to listen to this multiple times to understand the concepts. And even then will be left with questions to pursue.

    "Read Every Year..."

    I think this book needs to be revisited on an annual basis. We are always changing, and the new consciousness we bring to Tolle's "wisdom manual" is enriched with each successive exposure to what's contained here. First chapter is a little dense, sorry Eckhart, but can be taken in small bites or revisited after the fact. The rest is beyond brilliant. Thank you Herr Tolle.

    "Is he awake?"

    This man should not read this or any book aloud. He speaks in a dry, slow, monotone. The material is okay, but I couldn't finish listening to this. His reading was awful, and someone should have told him to hire a professional to read his book for him.

    "Horrible Book"

    This book is so stupid and horrible to listen to. Good example - the author quit his job, moved, and was floundering around. When he was totally broke, he won the lottery and things turned around for him.
    Moral of the story is??? Play the Lotto?

    "Observed and inspired"

    I read "Power of Now" and this book has no less gravity. A simple and focused attempt at ambushing the disguised and dangerous ego that possesses many of us. I'm a healthier father and a more caring mate having read these books. To the author, thank you.
    The audio version is especially powerful when listened to on walks among the people and the trees. A great companion indeed.

    "Terrible Narration"

    The worst narration I have ever put myself through. Authors are not always the best readers of their own work. The concepts introduced are pretty deep and an occasional pause to allow them to sink in would seem to be called for. But the author blows through so quickly that you don't even realize when one chapter ends and another begins. Read the book, it's well worth your time. But don't buy the audio unless you can find it narrated by a professional.

    "One Chapter in and Hooked"

    First....Eckhart Tolle is a fine reader and I love his tone, accent, and presence that he conveys. I'm listening to this in my car on a one hour commute and find my self fully immersed after one day. He draws from many areas of spirituality and explains things ins ways the not only make sense but are easy to try to do. I say 'try' because mindfulness of ones self is much easier said than done! Ahhh...the work never ends. That's ok.

    "Even better as a talking book"

    I loved this book when I was first give it in India by a wonderful and selfless man who thought I needed it (and I did). I will ever be in his debt. This book truly changed my life by changing the way I respond to the 'chattering' in my head. I hope it will do the same for you. Buy it and listen, but be warned, this is not a book for the car, I found my concentration was on the book and certainly not on the road.

    "Life Changing!"
    What made the experience of listening to A New Earth the most enjoyable?

    The way it was told


    What other book might you compare A New Earth to, and why?

    I cannot compare it to any other book since it is unique.


    Which character – as performed by Eckhart Tolle – was your favourite?

    N/a


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me stronger as a person.


    Any additional comments?

    This book has enabled me to deal with some very difficult situations of late. Having bookmarked several areas in the book - I find myself returning back to those bookmarks and listening again and again to gather infinite wisdom!

    "One of the best..."

    This is one of the best books I have ever read. If you want to make the most out of it, listen, pause and think. Maybe also grab a pen and some paper and jot down ideas. You won't regret it!

    "Pure Genius... but play it a double speed"

    Seriously I love the work of Eckhart Tolle but if I had listened at normal speed I would have had to give this a 1 star review. He speaks so painfully slowly and without any drama or character to his voice that it is almost impossible to listen.

    The audible app allows you to play back at different speeds and what do you know if you play him at 1.5x he sounds much better.

    "hypnotic"
    Where does A New Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top


    What did you like best about this story?

    its message


    Have you listened to any of Eckhart Tolle’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it is ultimately repetitive so the message is best heard over multiple sittings


    Any additional comments?

    If everyone read this book and could understand what the author was trying to say, then the world would be a much happier and healthier place.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Echart's Voice is so easy on your ears, a little strange at first but in the long run he's addictive


    Do you have any additional comments?

    There is no point in answering all the questions as this book, you are either ready for or your not, ultimately read it with your mind wide open and if you do allot of stuff just sorts itself.
    Thank you Echart for this wonderful contribution to explaining LIFE as it should be (im my opinion)

    "Thought preventing instead of provoking"

    Having listened gently to it, I have gained insight. You do not have to study, just listen.

    It explains why thoughts make our minds murky and robs us of life.

    I will listen to it often.

    OMG so full of wisdom. U can relate to everything Erkhart says. This is quite a long intense book which has to be understood in small steps and needs to be reread over & over to benefit the enormous amount of information. Almost like the bible! I've so much to learn. 😀

    "Mind-blowing Stuff"

    I must be honest here, I have spent my life so far being a bit of a cynic about anything that isnt completely factual with the exception of emotions and creativity, and am as such a total atheist. But I'd been having a hard time and was informed by reliable sources (ie. Russell Brand...) that this book is pretty remarkable.

    The opening lines of the book had my sighing and preparing myself to be utterly correct in my preconception that this would be a very hippie dippie book and would not on any level relate to me or my life, with its subject of the beauty of flowers. As beautiful as I agree flowers are I initially did not see how this was relevant.

    Throughout the course of this book I had several moments of pure clarity and a genuine challenge to my previously held beliefs that I found utterly fascinating. I am, probably to my detriment, a very opinionated person and I really appreciate and enjoy anything that legitimately changes my mind.

    This book changed my mind.

    If you can get past the connected one-ness of the universe dialogue and see the truth that lies between the lines of what I initially thought to be meaningless. At least to me anyway.

    And it genuinely helped. I'm not going to go into my personal issues in a book review, and everyone has their own intricately differing situations, but it was refreshing to see things from a new perspective and therapeutic to have the soothing voice of Eckhart reading his wisdom aloud, like my own personal therapist.
